Page Fuller (MO 2008-13) will undoubtedly be delighted to have a ride in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap race at Cheltenham Festival, the equivalent of the Olympics in the jump racing world.
Her mount, First Lord de Cuet, is trained by Martin’s son David, the race run in his father’s honour and now in its 13th year. Run over two miles, four and half furlongs, the is race is for four-year-olds and upwards and is restricted to conditional jockeys. Therefore riders will only compete in it once, maybe twice, so it is often seen a springboard for promising young pilots. The race is the last on the card at 4 50pm, but definitely not the least important, well not for Page.
We wish her all the very best.
